This is just too much. I already have another store that I'm considering moving away from Shopify, but I do Luv Shopify and wanted to try a 1 product store during the "new" free trial. This product took me forever to find again on Ali so I decided to jump on it. Then I found out it was "blacklisted", so I contacted the seller and they replied with a different link within their store. Cool, I thought, they replied so this must be a sign that it's okay to move forward with this product. They couldn't explain why it was blacklisted, only that "others" had the same problem. Again, I continued to work on product video and my store...only to go back into Oberlo and see it marked as BLACKLISTED AGAIN! This is NOT a good sign.
I'm keeping my domain for this shop, but closing before the trial ends. I'm tired of how people say it's so easy. I'm not in a position to take on returns for shady items. I'm not bashing Shopify; it's at the top of the list in e-commerce in my books.
Indeed, I will 🙂 I guess it was just the icing on the cake as far timing for me. Basically, I was building this trial store and the item was blacklisted twice and I was only a few days from launching, While I was doing this my other site needed attention, so I feel like now isn’t a good time to throw in a different product. But I will return in due time for another shot at this type of store👍
I do agree with you, that you should not give up, just try a different product, for sure! It was frustrating though not knowing why or how an item gets blacklisted. Oh well.
Glad to see that you got that sorted out. One product Shopify store ain't easy, it's just as hard as any other business.
